Dale Schultz's last word, J.B. Van Hollen and bugs.
What we're reading on this Friday morning. Mayor Tom Barrett says all 1,867 MPD officers will undergo new training related to mental health. The mayor credited the family of Dontre Hamilton with pushing for the initiative. During a Madison radio appearance, outgoing Republican state Sen. Dale Schultz accused his colleagues of "dismantling" state government. In other political news, Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen isn't gung ho to ...

Walker emails, a MU prof's suspension, and what the state of Wisco is worst at.
Overcast sky? Holiday stress got you down? Caffeine and Morning Links are your sure-fire cure: Jeb Bush may be making public some 250,000 emails. But that doesn’t mean Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will do the same. Marquette University political science professor John McAdams has been suspended for, as he puts it, “exercising his free speech” in a blog post. Thrillist compiled a list of “What Every State ...

D'Angelo, Jeb's active exploration and a meat smoker explosion.
Read all the news that's fit to link.  The streetcar has brought about the latest duel between the fighting Bobs (that's Ald. Bob Donovan - who is opposed to the project - and Ald. Bob Bauman, a major supporter), but a Common Council vote on the project likely won't happen until January, says the Journal Sentinel.  One Fond du Lac County man is dead after his homemade meat smoker exploded, ...

Milwaukee business leaders push for bold decisions, the Packers lose in Buffalo, and The Colbert Report enters its final week.
Good morning, and welcome to Monday. Several prominent Milwaukee business leaders wrote a letter encouraging "bold decisions and action by our elected leadership" on moving the city's many Downtown projects --including the Downtown streetcar -- forward. Yesterday marked two years since the death of 16-year-old Corey Stingley at a West Allis convenience store. If you haven't yet seen it, the locally made Vice News documentary, "The Death of Corey Stingley," which screened at ...

Common Core, The Couture and dark matter.
What we're reading on this Friday morning. Tom Daykin at the Journal Sentinel probes developer Rick Barrett's claim that he couldn't build The Couture tower without the streetcar project. Have Republicans in the state made peace with Common Core? This State Journal story suggests as much. ICYMI: Gov. Scott Walker explained away the "Molotov" gaffe as just a typo. Don't get too excited, but a ...
